I love the Christmas..more for the decor than the gifs really, so with that I decided to up and buy a little tree for our apartment! We weren’t going to get one since it’s just adding another thing to the list to pack up when we move. But. I spotted a $20 tree at Target and decided to just do it! Then I had to decide what colors to put on it…and does it surprise you I went with black, white, and glitter! I gave myself a $50 budget to pull the tree together, and wanted to get creative!
I love my black and white striped ribbon so I went along with that theme and decided to paint a few ornament bulbs myself. I purchased a few clear plastic ornaments from Hobby lobby for 1/2 off (yay!) I squeezed both black or white acrylic paint into each bulb and shook it like crazy. After that I used my white pain pen to draw on the black bulbs. And then used black paint to create the white bulbs. I still need to spray them with clear coat..but aren’t they just fun!
